MRS JULIA QUINGLE - an old-fashioned mother. A sweet-looking woman in her late fifties. Her hair is snow white, her complexion as smooth and free of wrinkles as that of a young girl.
CHESTER QUINGLE - her son, our manly hero. He is a tall, broad-shouldered chap, twenty-six years of age, smooth-faced and very handsome. His voice is inclined to be wavery and is at variance with his powerful frame.
ARCHIBALD QUINGLE - another son, the much despised villain. A tall, stocky man, twenty-five. Long sideburns and a heavy, black moustache decorate his face. He is very suave and polished as to manner and speaks in a deep and heavy voice.
MYRTLE JONES - the Quingle maid. She is in her late teens, of medium height and is possessed of a gloomy nature. Whenever anything displeases her, she is inclined to sulk.
DAISY DORRANCE - a woodland flower, our persecuated heroine. A beautiful girl in her early twenties. Her hair is worn in curls down her back. It is obvious that she is sad and troubled and her manner suggests great weariness.
BING BARNES - the funny feller. He is a short, stocky boy about seventeen years of age. Talks in a high, thin, nasal voice and it is obvious that he has been reared in a small town. His face is covered with freckles and he is anything but prepossessing in appearance.
MARY LAWSON - a book-keeper. She is a pretty girl in her mid twenties of medium height. She has a frank, direct manner of speaking that is decidedly convincing.
